growth. we are going to hear from republican senator marco rubio. he is going to give the official response. he says this opportunity to make it to the middle class or beyond no matter where you start out in life isn't be stowed on us in washington. sol larry, two different positions tonight. >> all right many thanks. appreciate it. we know the president opposes the see quester. is he willing to make a deal with the republicans? >> is there common ground? >> joining us peter welch and gop conference chair kathy mcmorris rogers. welcome back. let me go to you right now. first up, can you do business with president obama? he is opposed to this and wants to rewrite it and defer it change it? can you do business? >> i think it simimportant to remember that these devastating cuts were his ideas. it was the republicans that have put forward two times now proposals to replace these cuts with other ways to reduce spending. we passed these six months ago. we need the democrats to put their proposals forward. why is it that spending cuts are bad for the economy but tax increases are somehow
rubio. >> presidents in both parties from john frj. kennedy to ronal reagan have known a free enterprise economy is the source of our middle class prosperity. >> i want to start with that. no planning, no government direction, no subsidies, no collective action. i was hoping that your man would be closer to marco rubio. >> i a hundred percent gragree with that. the president had almost those exact lines in the state of the union. >> the trouble is he had a lot of other lines. therein lies the secret. >> you lost me at hello on this one. >> i want to start up. >> we didn't watch the same state of the union. your thing is it was a socialist manifesto and the president was emphasizing the root of economic growth comes from investing in the education and skills of your workforce. you got to have economic infrastructure, you got to build airports, you got to have decent highways and we got to have the transportation system that we need. >> that's what you say, that's what you've been telling me, that's what the president has been telling us. but unfortunately economic growth has been going no
the nation's deficit. beginning the republican response tonight as well from marco rubio. john, a lot of discussion tonight about the tone. the dow is at a fresh five-year high but a couple of wild cards in the form of north korea, foreign policy, a standoff in california tonight, the gun debate. >> the gun debate is one that's thrust itself into the nation's attention span, and the president's agenda, and this is going to only encourage that, but really the tone everybody is looking for is his tone vis-a-vis republicans. the inaugural, he had his elbows out a little bit. he was very newly confident just coming off that re-election. people will be watching to see how aggressive and confrontational he will be with them on the deficit, on the investment proposals he's going to make tonight which are modest but, nonetheless, are there. and on immigration, which is one way republicans are coming his way. >> larry kudlow, tonight you talked about the line between being assertive and confident and overreach. where is that tonight? >> that's a good question. a lot of people hope he will be m
is winning this battle for talent, which is i'm glad the president talked about it last night. senator rubio talked about it as well. i think it got the biggest ovation of the night from republicans and democrats. we need to come together and pass immigration reform. >> we heard from some small business people last night via twit tore a large degree, who said the immigration part is great, not so much on the minimum wage part. i wonder how much of an offset that might be to a small business person? >> a lot of things were talked about. it was an hour speech. there was a lot of components to it. i was encouraged when the president talked about they were building the economy. and solving the immigration issue. particularly from president obama and senator rubio, on the high-skilled immigration reform. i view it as a good night. and a hearing in the senate around immigration reformt. and this afternoon we'll hear more from the senators introducing that. we're making good progress. there's a lot of work to be done. immigration has always been a difficult, sensitive issue. it will require broad b
a transatlantic trade agreement. and marco rubio gave the republican response and criticized obama's programs and proposals as more unnecessary deficit spending. joining us for more, head of european g-10 fx bank of america merrill lynch. welcome. >> good morning. >> want to start talking about europe, about cypress where he got back from. first the u.s. dollar, what's happening with the potential fiscal talks. how concerned are you, what does it moon for trading the currency? >> the u.s. dollar has weakened so far this year because of the overall market risk move that we have seen. positive of surprises in the u.s. at the global level. and looking forward, we were bullish on the u.s. dollar because we see a market correction as the u.s. tightens fiscal policy substantially this year. >> how severe of a correction might that -- >> we believe for the rest of the year the euro/dollar will be closer to 1.30 or below, 1.35. >> really? >> also last week we believe in the way there's a ceiling on the strength of the euro warning that a fefbent strengthening -- fervent strengthing will affect inflat
future. we saw marco rubio as part of its future. we saw the future of the republican party get a drink of water on tv last night. the -- we're going to see whether they decide that it's in their interests to make a deal with him and move past that and start looking to future battles beyond the fiscal battles of today. >> i did notice that when they were trying to sum up what rubio said, i asked everyone yesterday, we all want to help the middle class. we're trying to figure out how to do. we know that most of the jobs need to come from the private sector. do you think that ceos or private sector-oriented people, did they feel like they got, that he put his arm around him more than previously or was it an expansion of or -- you know, sort of continuing to talk about an expansion of liberal ideas, bigger government? >> i would think they would not feel that the president put their arm around him necessarily. when you listened to the president talk about i'm going to take executive action to implement my philosophy on climate change for example, you're going to have a lot of people -- we
kathy mangu-ward. i want to read senator marco rubio's great line. best line of the night. "presidents in both parties, from john f. kennedy to ronald reagan, have known that our free enterprise economy is the source of our middle-class prosperity." and this whole speech was pro growth. question. where was obama on the growth issue? i didn't hear a single pro growth in an economy that you yourself don't trust at all. where was he on that? >> no, he wasn't. it was the same old, same old, same speech we've heard a million times. there was nothing new in it. i was wanting to throw things at the television set because there were so many untruths in it. so many things that were false, that just didn't -- >> give me a -- what stands out? give me an untruth you particularly dislike. >> just that the economy is doing well. the economy is coming back. we're -- really? really? you ask the average person on the street how they're feeling about it. the pulse of america is not feeling good about this economy. and no matter what he says it's not happening. it's just not. i get so tired of hearing it
debt. the response will come from marco rubio of florida. joining us, peter roskam of illinois, chief deputy whip for the republican conference. sir, nice to have you here. >> thank you very much. >> you're from illinois, you know a lot about spending, not that you helped create it. tonight are we going to hear anything about that side of the ledger, the spending, you think? >> you get the joke on illinois spending and it's in a downward spiral. it's a type of world view from an economic point of view that is completely an mating the white house. take illinois spending patterns and extrapolate that onto the u.s. economy, that's where the president is proposing to lead us about $26 trillion in debt. i don't think we're going to hear a lot about how the president can grow the economy through the private sector and why unemployment is still at a nagging 7.9%. i think that's where the action is and what he should be talking about but i don't think that's what we'll be hearing. >> when i was on "squawk box" this morning we entered a lot of democrats. they seem to think his last speech and
and directed directly at the opposing party tonight the. >> and what about the response from marco rubio? what's the republican line likely to be here? are they similarly going to use this as a way to make their case to the public as a place for avoiding the sequester or not depending on what the the agenda is? >> i think they will. i think what you'll see senator rubio do who, by the way, has a tough job tonight. it's very hard to deliver a speech in the format directly following the president and look at it all on equal term. first, he has to lay out a thoughtful critique as to what the president's plan is. to your point or sequester, tax raise easy, i think you'll see marco rubio lay out a vision for how a long-term spending cut plan will be better for the economy. secondly, he has to be positive. he has to be uplifting. the republican brand has taken a hit over these last spending hikes can it cannot afford to keep being seen as the party of keeping people down, so to speak. and as a result of that, i think you'll see him give a very uplifting, very personal accounting of his rise in ameri
. >> carry on. no. hang on a second. i'm -- rubio. thank you. marco rubio. oh, it's monday. all right. >>> a senate panel is expected to grill jack lew on his nomination hearing to be the next treasury secretary. republicans will ask him about a nearly $1 million he received from citigroup before the bank got a tax bailout. despite criticism, lew is expected to win the confirmation hearing. >>> apple. i like the idea of a watch with the features of a smartphone. "the wall street journal" says apple has discussed such a major project. anything can be used to test mobile phones. >> you can probably wear one as a necklace, too. there are all sorts of options. >> it's like a square bracelet. >> if it's not big, though, it will look so goofy. like i have one of those shuffles. it's about maybe an inch square, maybe. or is that complete ly -- earlir on the show, we asked, would you lie an i watch? it might have some possibilities. jet tweeted saying an apple iwrist device sounds sick is him lar to an old dick tracy cartoon wrist radio-tv device. >> maybe it will help them protect margins if
that, don't say that. >> marco rubio, last night, taking a sip of water, fra spring, listen. >> nothing frustrated me more than false choices than the one the president laid out tonight. the choice isn't just become big business -- >> oh, jane you lived on prime time for years in l.a., do you feel his pain? >> well, here is the thing. that's the only part i have to admit in the whole state of the un con thing i tuned into. we have been obsessed with this homicidal cop killer we have been dealing with. so by the time that was over, i tune need that. i like the fact that afterwards we actually made fun of himself. he tweeted the shot of the bottle. spring is trying to maximize this moment. and you know who is most happy with governor gyndal, because of his odd walk to the podium is forgotten about. >> what do you think. >> oh, hold on, little parched. this guy will have to did a lot of long intensive things. a lot of decisions. i need him to handle 15 minutes. but my favorite part by far of all of this, was that he blamed god for it. he goes well, god has a funny way of reminding you you'
of a recovery track. >> that's going to involve marco rubio, giving the response later on in the evening. to what degree is rubio going to sort of crystallize or illustrate what some are calling a reinvention of the gop's image, at least among middle collapse americans? >> i don't think it's a reinvention, i think republicans have always been about empowering people and not necessarily entitling people. in my office in washington, i have a little red wagon that says are you pulling or are you riding. i think what we want is to make sure everybody in america has the tumt to pull their wagon and have the successes and liberties and freedoms available in this country. i think we'll lay that out tonight with senator rubio's remarks. >> when it comes to specific things regarding the market, there are some reports today, congressman, that he is not going to announce new regulations on carbon emissions for existing power plants. how much will you be on the lookout for that, things that affect energy, coal, nuclear, obviously things that have an effect on the rails as well? >> we'll be looking e
happening in the party and does it happen? >> well, i think marco rubio is the best sign so far. here's the problem. is that the republican party in a strong period from 1968 to '88, that was really their period of dominating stod earn electoral politics. did it with a strategy of polarization that essentially gathered up much of the population against, as it happened, african-americans. what we've seen now is a demographic shift. so you'll remember right before this latest election, this is why i wanted to write the story, all we were hearing about when it came to racial issues was how barack obama might not be able to get as much as 40% of the white male vote. well, three or four election cycles ago, that would have ruined him. today, that is the minority in this country. it's not just african-americans, it's asians, it's latinos, it's women who see themselves as an outsider group. that is the new majority that republicans have to deal with. so someone like marco rubio sees this as far as immigration reform goes. here is his problem. it's party or not just about candidates, attracti
